Espinosa Premium Cigars has announced announce a new limited Knuckle Sandwich cigar, the Espinosa Knuckle Sandwich "55." This new cigar was created to commemorate Guy Fieri’s 55th birthday and was first seen at his birthday party over the past weekend. Production is limited to five-hundred and fifty-five (555) boxes and delivery will start to existing Knuckle Sandwich accounts at the beginning of February 2023.
The Knuckle Sandwich maduro might be my favorite cigar of the last year, and this one comes close to it. It is more refined, but without the power and spice that define the Knuckle Sandwich Maduro. I only have one of these cigars and I can't wait to pick up more to age and enjoy. This collaboration between Espinosa and Guy Fieri knocks it out of the park at every opportunity, and everyone should try a Knuckle Sandwich whether it's this one, or one of the other options.
General Cigar and Espinosa Cigars have announced a new, and final size in their Warzone line. This marks the fourth vitola to be available, following the original (2020) Robusto and Toro, and 2021's Short Churchill. This new size is one of Espinosa's signature sizes, the Rabito, a 6” x 46 corona gorda.
2022 is the 10th anniversary of both Espinosa Premium Cigars and Cigar Dojo. To celebrate, the two have collaborated on the Cigar Dojo Travel Kit, a unique travel humidor containing new sizes of Espinosa Habano and Sensei's Sensational Sarsaparilla. Both cigars come in a new Rabito vitola that is a 6 x 48 toro with a twisted pigtail head.

Smoke Inn Cigars is partnering with Espinosa Premium Cigars for another entry in the Smoke Inn MicroBlend Series. Espinosa Cage the DAWG will debut today, October 5th at 12:00pm EDT.
"This was an eye-catching cigar, the barber pole consisting of the medium brown and Candela color was pleasant to the eye. The mildly creamy smoke with cool consistency and sweet flavors which remained through the first third and about halfway through the second third were very pleasant and mild to medium. Finishing up the second third and into the final third although the sweetest remained and was definitely present the mild black pepper and leather dominated the cigar. It should be noted, although the flavors did change in proportion, they remained greatly consistent making for an overall enjoyable smoke. I enjoyed the cigar very much and would definitely recommend it to friends and family, I think this cigar would pair well with sweeter type drinks maybe a Moscato type wine or a malty Belgian type ale.

Espinosa Premium Cigars has announced the eighth iteration of their Warhead line. The Espinosa 601 La Bomba Warhead VIII will be shown off at the PCA trade show next week. Like previous releases, it comes in one unique size, a 6 x 60 box-pressed gordo.
"Bold and well balanced. There were some nice shifts, and enough complexity to keep it interesting through the end. I could easily smoke this again, though I would go for a little more food in the stomach, as it was fairly strong by the end." -Chris M. (Chris)
